J.FitzPatrick Footwear Update

Ladies & Gentleman,

The time is almost near for the long anticipated launch of my footwear collection, J.FitzPatrick. Here you can see about two thirds of my collection and get a true idea of how it is going to look. While these are nearly all 100% done, there will still be a few minor detail changes to one or two patterns. It has been officially confirmed that I will be launching my range at Gieves & Hawkes in February of 2013, not only in the No.1 Savile Row location, but also selling online for all of you that cannot make it to London. As always I do appreciate all of you that have supporting me from the very beginning and for all of the new support and encouragement that I receive on a weekly basis. While this might seem cheesy and overly heartfelt, please know that it is your support that helps drive me, especially during times where I felt that my shoes would never be thank you!!!

I hope that many of you enjoy what you see thus far.....and just to let you know, I will have mid-brown shoes....and the fringes (kilty's) on the chukka boots are detachable!

Instagramafied for special cool effects!


  1. Really want to get my hands on the black semi-brogue oxfords in the second pic from the top!

  2. Blue monks and green ones are very beautiful

    Good luck !

  3. Justin, awesome collection, I particularly like the brown suede chukka with the fringes.

    Best of luck!

  4. Amazing work Justin.
    I wish you the best of luck, although lookin at your collection, I can't imagine you will need any!!

  5. Justin
    THis is so Fab. I whant to say thaks for letting ud in to your journey, I for one is happy with your online service.

  6. nice work justin! looks fantastic! when you say that you will be selling online does that mean that they will be sold thourgh G&H online site as well or that you will have your own website selling them?

    any idea of pricing justin?


  7. Mr. Shoe God....I second the comment from "Moi"....I NEED THEM! Tremendous work!

  8. Gorgeous! Congratulations! You are probably going to take some money from me ...

  9. I agree with the first comment about the semi brogues. And as i have said before the tan cap in the corner of the first picture are fantastic

  10. Justin,

    How much are those balmoral boots going to retail for?

  11. Best of luck with it all Justin.

  12. Congratulations and wonderful designs. Can you share some manufacturing details - goodyear welted? made in Northampton or elsewhere? and perhaps an idea of price range generally, even though I recognize that final price will be determined by G&H. Thanks.

  13. The shoes look fantastic. I live in the US but will be in London in March sometime. It would be a fun day to stop by Gieves & Hawke to say hello and maybe buy a pair.

  14. Looks great, definitely going to try and get a pair or two. What leather do you use?

  15. Justin,

    I've made a diary note already, they all look great, in particular the suede loafers.

    I guess I'll start saving now.


  16. I could see myself easily getting a wholecut oxford or loafer, your saddle brogue, a penny loafer, a chukka boot or the suede topped monk... I can't afford every single one of those, and now you're making me choose?

    I almost wish your line was smaller!

  17. Justin,

    I tip my hat. these shoes are awesome. Are they all welted? When you'll provide us with pricing. I hope you aren't planning G&G, or St. Crispin's. I'm glad I'm one of your followers.

  18. Hi Justin,

    A collection to be truly proud of! I particularly like the blue suede monks, a very clever variation on a all too well known theme.

    And although I have a particular dislike for whole cuts, I really like what you have done with yours. I wouldn't mind owning a pair of those.

    Like it was said here before, I would wish you luck with your whole enterprise, but I think luck doesn't enter into the thing with a collection like this!

    Andy - At first I will be selling on G&H's website, for the first year, but I will definitely be looking to create my own website....but that comes with a warehouse to hold the stock....

    Prices will be around £300-£350....nothing concrete yet though....still need to get my cost sheet before I create my retail price list....will know better next week...but around those prices...

    Adrian - yea, I am picking a few for myself too to wear for representation and I am finding it a bit hard to decided as well....

    Really happy to hear that you like them though!

    Ike - All welted sir, and no, I will be more closer to C&J's price range....maybe in the future I will make a line like G&G.... Glad to hear that you like them. Thanks for constant support and loyalty!


  20. Paul Van Der Hart - Sorry Paul, I just realized that I overlooked your comment the last time that I replied. Firstly, thank you for your kind words and your constant support. Glad to hear that you like a few of them, hopefully we can get a few on your feet ;-)
